Niagara based artist Sheldon Rooney’s work in Up Close and In Motion at Rodman Hall is a visual library executed in woodcuts. I offer a more literary response than usual, to this citation of significant authors.
In this version of Up Close and In Motion at Rodman Hall, Assistant Curator Emma German shares a work by a Canadian Art icon – John Boyle – of another Canadian Icon, Stompin’ Tom Connors. I offer some ideas of history and Canadiana, and how we came to be where we are now.
Bevan Ramsay and I exchanged some questions and thoughts on his work at Niagara Artists Centre, Lesser Gods, from his collaborators to his concepts.
